leader harry reid says he want a bipartisan deal, if possible and other top democrats continue to say if the gospel doesn't agree to reform the way the president wants it, democrats will -- and harry reid said himself, go it alone. caroline shivley, live in washington. >> eric: so let's start with this, how significant do you think the remarks are by the senator this morning? >> reporter: i think it is significant, eric because it comes from enzi and if it was one of the other 39 republicans in the senate it would be a blow but not that big of a deal but he's one of the guys at the table. listening to him describing democrats' efforts in the g.o.p. internet address this weekend. >> both the president and the democratic controlled congress will reject the go it alone path they are currently on. if they do, we'll have a chance to truly work on a real bill, that will address those critical issues. >> reporter: did you hear enzi call it a go it alone path and democrats disagreed that that is their goal and he's one of the republicans trying to negotiate the bipartisan deal. and the gang o
for that. sean: what happens if chuck schumer and senator harry reid, but what if they go forward and used a reconciliation process because they don't have enough democratic senators on board for cloture. what happens then? >> i think that this destroys the unique aspect of the institution of the senate which is the 60 vote principle. jim might recall that i fought hard for that principle. -- you might recall that i fought hard for that principle. i was criticized by some at that time. the fact is that if they go this way in the reconciliation, i think that you will see a backlash in the u.s. senate and across this country. the institution of the senate works on the 60 votes basis in many occasions. sean: have you talked to any of the leadership about this? have you talked to harry reid? the republicans have been left out of the process. there has been no discussion even with you? >> no, and i would point out that the legislation that passed the committee and the house was democrat proposed and we try to amend and everyone was turned down. this is not bipartisan nor has there been any sign
, it is important that we -- >> nancy pelosi, harry reid, and the rest of the people in congress, are they going to be willing to be on the same plan they are asking us to be on? sean: listen to those crowds. "angry mobs"? "manufactured"? what are your thoughts. >> i think it is organic, and i do want to make this point, and this is important. these are our electorates officials, and i think it is important that we treat them with respect and dignity -- these are our elected officials. this is important. we're going to be bringing something to you next week from our focus group. i hear that anger. but if it is an elected official, even if we disagree with them, i think we should treat them with respect and dignity. sean: i agree, but how about the dnc saying about the people showingç up our "kendry" -- are "angry"? is that manufactured? or is this real passion that people have? how about the respect for the people? >> sean, you are right. this is a real passion. we see it and all of the polling. we see that gzjáÑ is the obama support dropping, but the intensity of the opposition is increasin
. good evening, wendell. >> chris, this legislation passed by a 3-1 margin in the house an harry reid is confident he has the votes to pass it in the senate but lawmakers are spending hours debating amendments they know will be rejected just to get their objections on the record before they go home for the august break. as of yesterday, the clunkers program had burned through three-quarters of the billion dollars congress initially appropriated, suggesting the original $4 billion authorization the house wanted was a closer estimate of the program's appeal and its cost. gp was the big winner with 17.8 p% of the cash for clunkers car sales. >> it has been a madhouse, people coming in with their clunkers wanting to trade them in. >> the big 3 accounted for 45% of the sales, which is their normal market share. still, four of the five top selling new cars are sold by foreign manufacturers. 60% of the foreign cars were actually built in this country. in fact, hyundai's montgomery, alabama plant is back to a five-day work week after being on a four-day week since october, and ford is conside

[cheers] bill: is that true? and how is the media covering it? bernie goldberg will analyze. >> i have never really been interested in politics. meeting john edwards was interesting. bill: the mistress of john edwards testifies in front of a grand jury today. she brought her baby. how much trouble is the former senator in? megyn kelly will tell us. >> president obama promised transparency, yet, he has chosen not to release his original birth certificate or a copy of it. bill: now lou dobbs wife being attacked on nbc because of the commentators reporting on cnn. we will tell you what going on. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now.

the senate majority leader, harry reid. god forbid you would have to see the voters face to face. that is scary. bill: nothing like a good old- fashioned conference call to drive your point home. and i think that the one question that we get more than any other from viewers is that if they are pushing for it this way in congress, will they live by it? megyn: do you know the second question? how does bill tai such a perfect tied? bill: spot on. my neighbor has been asking this for months, if the plan is so great, why not sign up for yourself? megyn: a reality television star, bay on a popular series. she is a bikini model. now she is dead and he is on the run. profile comes from the reality television web site. cops believe he might be the killer. bill: the largest identity theft in history. the number of victims could total more than one-third of the entire u.s. population. how can you defend yourself from line attacks that are this significant? -- from of attacks that are this significance -- from online attacks that are this significant ? are you receiving a payout from a legal
to roll over every time harry reid or nancy pelosi brings them to the white house. i have a list of "talking points." i should not have gotten hold of this. two democratic members of the house democratic leadership accompanied with their simplistic platitudes and bumper stickers "talking points" the one of the strategies is saying go demonize insurance companies. tell people, no more co-pays. no more out-of expenses, no more yearly caps on what you pay. even though the bill does not say these things nor will any of this happen, they're engaged in a propaganda campaign. can these simplistic "talking points" work? >> well, they can if they don't know the facts. the facts are yeah, they'll do all that. you just won't get to see a doctor. you won't have any care. you don't have a co-peay or deductible. you won't have a tr or nurse or medicine! a quarter of all medicare money is spent in the last year of the patient's life. they can't say we want those people to die but that's what they mean. they are going to slice medicare. my father is 99 years old. he spent a week in the hospital,

: this guy is a liberal, apparently. >> non-py pelosi, harry -- nancy pelosi, harry reid, and the rest of the people in the congress and the senate, are they going to be willing to be on the same plan they're asking us to be on? >> in ten years, it will create a $10 billion surplus. >> ha ha ha ha ha! >> in your face! >> there has never been a government program that had a surplus! >> something to say to your constituents, sir? >> stop spending our money! no cap and trade! no to cap and trade! glenn: this is amazing. in my lifetime, i have never seen anything like this. i know the left has dismissed a lot of these people because they don't understand actual grassroots. it's all community organized for them, but a lot of these people are people that have just never done this kind of stuff before in their life. bringing back now senior judicial analyst, and author of "dread scott's revenge" judge andrew napolitano. huh a wild experience this weekend, but i have talked to people, listeners, who told me they went to some of these town hall meetings and some of these people are not allowed
harry reid of bullying by telling an employee of the review journal that he wants the paper shut down. sherman frederick calls out the democratic senator in sunday's paper alleging that the arc was made during a brief exchange between reed and the advertising director. fred frederick writes that he said "i hope you go out of business." the publisher minced no words in his response to reid saying such behavior must be called what it was, a full-on threat perpetrated by a bully. reid's office did not respond to our request for comment. the governor of massachusetts today announced when a special election will take place to determine the successor to the late senator ted kennedy. the absence of the noted deal maker is seen by a blow to president owe baism ma's healthcare reform effort. steve brown reports on where that effort goes from here. >> i am designating, tuesday, january 19, 2010 as the date of the date of the speech elect. that date is almost five months away. we can't wait five months. we have to wait in the next few months to get this done by the end of the of the year. >> can
to say that i am unpatriotic or yesterday harry reid said i'm an evil monger. that is so offensive at so many levels, i can't tell you. i am the average citizen. that's why i want to thank you y'all for letting me come on the program this morning. i think in that regard i sort of represent the average guy. he doesn't get a voice in this game. with all these people showing up. we sort of do have a dog in the fight right now. and i'm glad i'm part of that. >> mark, who asked a great question of a u.s. senator yesterday. it was great that you could visit us on this friday. alisyn: thanks, mark. >> thank you very much. alisyn: we can all probably agree that health care in america has some problems. and may be in need of reform. why can't the president sell that message to the masses? the five key things that americans are not buying about reform next. steve: we showed you this video steven tyler from aerosmith falls right off the stage. there he goes. i believe that's at sturgeon sturedges. will the front man have to take a backseat on the tour? brian: he got really hurt. bvr since arthur's
was going to help his son. nancy pelosi said that these people were manufactured. on and on it goes. harry reid calling them shrill. many people believe that this is not the way to have the discretion. you think barack obama need to come to their defense? >> he is an outrage manufacturer himself. there was a piece published in 2007 talking about his history of being a community organizer. one of his fellow organizers said the method that he used -- megyn: one of the original community organizers. >> exactly. he said that they needed to make them feel rotten about their life, from the source of discontent. he goes on to say that barack obama was one of the best at doing this. how can the white house say that this is wrong, when they actually have the same sort of thing in the president? he spent most of his career doing this, organizing to do this type of thing. megyn: he did a similar thing in the campaign to encourage similar tactics. >> he encouraged us to have a discussion. all of a sudden now that it is opposing their leftist dog month, they are proposing it. this is part of a bigger a
? is america now in decline because of the radical views of this president, nancy pelosi and harry reid? >> i think that there's a lack of an optimistic message. we're not hearing so much about what america is going to be and how we're going to get there. i don't want to blame that completely on probe. i think that there's an overall mood, people are just anxious and nervous. part of it is because they don't see any positive impact of the policies, in fact, they're seeing the opposite. a great example of that is when -- if they really are it serious about stimulus, then help retrain people for a job, put the money in community colleges and empower people to go, be retrained for a job to replace the one. sean: do you think too many people, cash for clunkers, refrigerators, college, housing, do you think too many people have almost forgotten what the institution's about, what freedom's, what liberty's about and they're adopting the false promises of a government that will offer them anything in their per suit of snow shower >> never forget the words of margaret thatcher. the problem with social
for their own health care goals. and harry reid told fox today that the senate democrats will use any legislative means necessary if republicans don't play ball. add that up, hope but also a strategy. shepard: what are republicans saying? >> a couple of things, shepard. first of all, on the public option that you outlined in the intro to this entire piece. republicans have serious misgivings about that. another republican we talked to today said he just wants the white house to calm down. let's take them both. >> you can have a government that makes the rules and then have a government competitor that is allegedly come mige with those same rules that it imposes on the private sector. >> i wish the white house would take a deep breath and pause. it seems to me there is a lot of animation and nervousness coming out of the white house that isn't really necessary. >> well, the president himself will take a deep breath and pause but that won't be until next week when he heads to martha's vineyard. shepard: the president has kept quiet on this issue for a couple of days, but today he broke
seats. that was pretty bad. that wasn't a 40%, 40% deal. laura: evil mongers as we heard harry reid refer to people at the town hall events. evil monger, astro turf fringe, food fight. none of that has worked. discussing civil engagement in this way, a man who was a community organizer, we have people organizing. they might not agree with his agenda but they are organizing. why isn't this celebrated? why is it constantly dismissed as irrelevant and by the white house. >> i don't think the white house is so much dismissing it as. laura: food fight. robert gibbs called it a food fight. it's not respective of the country. was boseman monday that tana representative today. >> i'm sure people on the left would say today was. people on the right would say arlen specter was. laura: i think the president of the united states should celebrate the fact that more people are engaged in this public debate than ever before. that's what we thought about it. >> i think what you are seeing in the outrage at the town halls is powerlessness. these are people that by and large, their party is out of po
democratic vote in the senate. that's why harry reid, the democratic leader in the united states senate has been calling for this, and i think patrick and the democratic leaders will be able to get it done. >> so that would be the reason that the republicans might stand down on opposition on the understanding this would not be a five-month jump-start on the special election for whoever got appointed? does that -- and does that mean, then, it's more likely -- less likely to be the prosecutor from the infamous nanny case, martha coakley and more somebody like governor dukakis? >> yes, absolutely. if it were to be the attorney general coakley who wants to run. she was interested in running if john kerry had won the presidency in 2004. she is very ambitious. that would scotch the deal right there. it would have to be somebody like mike dukakis, talked about a lot. certain historic justice from a democratic state to have a former democratic standard bearer take that job and mike dukakis policy is up on the issues, would be perfect for the job. that's the kind of person that would have to say i'm
destruction clinton to both clintons you name it. al gore, harry reid, they all thought there were weapons of mass destruction there. ted kennedy and john kerr kerry both said there were weapons of mass destruction. when it became obvious in july of 2003 that they weren't. the democrats began to say consistently that bush lied that drove his numbers down. i don't think republicans are going to act in a hyperpartisan way and say that obama is lying. credibility is the most important thing to a president. if your opposition doesn't believe you are legitimate to begin with. and begins this drum beat when they are aided by the media. it can be enormously creditor rosen. some cable people are hammering obama as being incompetent test not as a liar but as incompetent. he is in over his head, doesn't know what he is doing. that, i think may stick. that might stick. >> it may. look, i wrote a column early this year which i said i thought the obama white house was winging it. i think they are winging it to their disadvantage on this issue. i think though there is a difference between saying he is a
not renew it? >> not much. senate majority leader harry reid plans to start debate after the debate on -- vote on sotomayor this afternoon. he thinks he has the votes to pass it, and it is the last order of business before the august recess. so opponents of the program are not going to want to spend a lot of time on what they know is a losing effort. supporters say that the program is the most effective program there is, doing all the right things, taking gas-guzzlers' off the street, replacing them with cars that get better mileage. critics say that it is more deficit spending and bailout money, another example of the government choosing winners and losers. jon: is it true that most of them are built by foreign manufacturers? >> 6 of the top 10 cars are built by foreign manufacturers, but most of them are built in this country. hyundai has added protection in alabama. gm has the biggest share of new car sales, detroit's big three has a little more than 45%, and the three japanese companies have about 36%. jon: all right. thank you. jane: if you drive a midsize sedan, a fender bende
of this program is quote in harry's court refering to senator majority leader harry reid will he bring the house majority in extending it for the vote and will the f word rise speaking of filibuster. but here's another question they are facing as well. where will the money come from and senator chuck schumer says they could get the money from the energy loan fund and senator feinstein says democratic leaders agreed take it out of tarp but many say the program could be considered beyond this $2 billion and she was once opposed to the bill but now touts it as a good plan because consumers are turning in their clunkers and getting cars that get on average 61 miles better on average so looking at it this way it remains to be seen how the republicans will vote on this. megyn: where does it stop? how much money should we put into cash for clunkers? in the meantime you mentioned the f word. what are republicans saying about this program? because we heard it across the board. they said we're going to filibuster and not let it get a vote then others saying over our dead bodies. where do the republicans s
the white house. the democrats could hit -- take a hit in 2010. even the senate's top democrat, harry reid appears to be vulnerable. brand new polling shows that the top two potential republican contenders would both kohl had of him in a head-to-head matchup. when you are talking about big names like that, at the 2010 race could be a plea for democrats. jon: the independent voters are the ones who hold the key there. >> brand new gallup polling shows that 70% of independent voters disapprove of congress and what it has been doing. only 22% say that they approve of what is happening. those numbers pull closer how republicans rank congress. those voters are all-important. there is still a lot of time to get them on board. right now, they clearly are not. jon: what does it mean for the gop? >> eight could be a perfect stew of things right now. also when you factor in the health-care town hall meetings, it is just a lot of frustration. here is what a republican congressman had to say. >> it is a combination of the work they've done and where they're going. it is also about arrogance. the arrog
friend in the senate. today i lost a treasured friend. from harry reid it was the thrill of my lifetime to work with ted kenny. from nancy pelosi no one has done more than senator kennedy to educate our children care for our seniors. from john kerry, we have known for sometime this day was coming. nothing makes it any easier. we have lost a great light in our lives and politics and it will never be the same again. now congress is in recess right now. most members are back in their states or with their families. many of them most likely still waking up and learning the sad news this morning. but, maggie as you said, this is likely to be a very different place when they come back in september. >> reporter: tough to imagine. nancy cordes on capitol hill. thanks nancy. we take you to boston and the john f. kennedy presidential library and museum where jim axelrod is standing by. i understand people have been bringing flowers. >> reporter: a lot of reaction and condolences here in massachusetts. not just from the prominent but the everyday folks remembering senator kenn
, at least according to these studies. very quickly, cash for clunkers. harry reid says there's going to be another couple billion dollars in the pipeline. that's what he believes anyhow. there is a problem with inventory. from your perspective, do you think that has worked? and should it continue? >> it's a wildly popular program, harry. it's worked very well. in about eight or ten days the government has proved we can get money out the door and sell almost 160,000 cars and push about $600 million out the door in order to do it. this is a huge boost for the economy. so we have proven that government can get it done. i know there's a car plant that's going to be opening up i think in ohio or already has. we think it's going to create -- >> ray lahood, thank you so much. we'll be right back. >> thank you. >>> this portion of the "early show" sponsored by lendingtree.com. control your financial destiny. get started at the all-new lendingtree.com. (announcer) introducing smoothies from sunnyd ! as much calcium and vitamin d as milk, and so creamy smooth and bold, they'
extension needed to keep the program alive, but senate majority leader harry reid announced he is confident it will pass. >> cash for clunkers, we'll pass cash for clunkers. >> when will you do that? >> before we leave here. >> what are we going to do when the $2 billion runs snout are we going to spend another $5 billion? are we in the car business at the retail level forever? >> mitch mcconnell says his party won't block a vote and the matter will be completed. >>> happening today, president obama is headed to indiana where he'll announce a manufacturing grant to talk about his efforts to get the economy back on track. elkhart's unemployment rose to the highest level in the nation. this will be mr. obama's third visit to the area. >>> president obama celebrated his 40th birthday yesterday. he celebrated with this impressive cake there including the presidential seal, but he also had a trick up his sleeve. he surprised helen thomas who turned 89 and shares a birthday with him. she was serenaded with happy birthday. >> it is hard to believe she is 89. >> she's been around for a long time an
-doing nazis that harry reid and nancy pelosi disparagingly try to portray them as. they are very concerned about the long arm of government reaching in and making huge changes to a health care system that is the best in the world. jon: jehmu, rasmussen reports took a poll of the american people. here are the numbers they came up with. when asked which would be better, passage of the bill working its way through congress or no health care reform passed by congress this year, 35% like the bill that's kind of being formed. 54% said don't do it. i mean, doesn't that suggest that the political winds are aligned against the president and the administration on this one? >> well, i think it's funny because i have worked on a number of campaigns. to say what i'm about to say is probably not good. this poll is being controlled by the millions of dollars that the insurance companies have poured into their methods. they don't want any sort of reform. they don't want to be forced to have competition. they want a man in a suit to get in between a decision that me and my doctor are going to make. so yes,
landing planes, even nancy pelosi, harry reid and barack obama will be elderly some day. >> pat buchanan, i wanted to ask you because sarah palin -- you've followed sarah palin's ark closely. again, something that sarah palin is not helping herself here, talking about these death panels, about how barack obama's plan could lead to the death of little trig. that's not helpful to her on the cause, is it? >> it's not only tough, it is impossible to defend. it's got nothing to do 0 with children. there have been good, frankly, good columns that end of life thing, these professional physician counselors. charles lane had one i think it was saturday in "the washington post" which i thought was excellent and there's no doubt that, look, they are going to cut back benefits, prescription drugs, things like that to some extent for the elderly because all the expenses come in the last six months of life and these are going to have to be cut back. that's what you're seeing that lady, a 74-year-old cancer patient, you're seeing all that concern. that's one of the driving forces, parents and about the
